What were you taught about anger growing up?
Being raised as a good Catholic girl, I was rigorously guided on how to be more generous, more kind, more compassionate, and completely dedicated to serving others.
All good things, right?
Because by the time I was 14 years old, I was filled with a lot of emotions that were not so…um…”Christ-like.”
I was really depressed.
I was deeply frustrated.
And perhaps most of all, I was ANGRY as hell.
And for good reason. I was filled with rage when I saw
…the poverty across the street that I felt powerless to change
…the boring, factory-like education system I was forced to participate in
…the loveless marriage my parents lived in because they feared a social taboo around divorce
Just to name a few :)…
But because my family and my religion said that this anger was unholy and unlovable, I repressed and covered over these parts of who I was. I avoided conflict like the plague and I made sure that there was always a smile on my face in public.
My parents did the same thing and I watched in silence as the anger tore them apart from the shadows. Unable to express her anger, my mother lived in a passive aggressive state, deeply resentful from over-giving. Unable to express his anger, my father would just disappear whenever there was an issue. Sometimes for hours, sometimes for days.
I didn’t want to go down the same path as them. I’m a firm believer that every single part of who we are is sacred, loveable, and useful….as long as we know how to engage with it. So I made a commitment to myself to learn how to honor my anger in healthy ways.
I dove deep into the wisdom of psychology, buddhism, non-violent communication, and leadership development…I studied, practiced and implemented lots of tools and techniques for over 10 years, testing them in my marriage, my business, and even my conversations about politics …
Today, I’m happy to share with you that anger is one of my favorite emotions. I love anger because it empowers me to:
– Better understand myself
– Deepen my relationships
– Speak my truth
– Put passion and energy into my work
Plus, when I teach my clients how to use their anger productively, they become so much more confident, more empowered, and more connected to their authentic truth.
